Who Are Vulnerable Targets?

It is important to talk to your child about their self worth and self-esteem, as bullies typically pick on people who they not only deem physically weak but also emotionally and mentally weak. Exemplifying high self-esteem and knowing when to lead and when to follow can deter bullies from picking your child as a target.
